    The western peak of the Annapurna Mountain range is the Mera Peak, an area known for difficult snow trekking along the high summit. The difference between the base camp and the high camp is laid upon the large rock loosened up with time, which requires fixing. An experienced trekker can easily get away with 20 m sections, while a larger group might require around 300m. In this part of the world, acclimatization is the key to success. Chulu West Peak Climbing is not for everyone. Even the most experienced and veteran mountaineers will have a hard time acclimatizing at an altitude of 5,600m. If there is a presence of a single cloud in the region, it will definitely be at Chulu West. The central peak is not really a job for the commercial group since trekking in this range is very difficult and things can change at an instance while climbing the peak.

    Chulu West is a mountain, situated on the trekking trail of the Annapurna mountain circuit. In order to climb Chulu West Peak, one must be adventurous enough to climb and have all the stamina and experience to walk the tough climb. It requires to walk around 8-9 hours a day at high altitude. Physical fitness and health are also prominent factors to be eligible for such a journey. Even though we provide the basic services of the Sherpa guide to accompany you with the climb, you must have basic knowledge of mountain climbing. Once at the peak of the Chulu West, the climbers can witness the majestic view of Mt. Dhaulagiri. There are also other famous mountains visible from the site, such as Tukuche Peak, Nilgiri, Annapurna and many others within the far ends of the view.

    Why Chulu West Peak Climbing

    • Stunning view of the peak of Manang Himal.
    • Typical Nepal trekking off the beaten track north of Annapurna.
    • Trekking to the popular Annapurna region.
    • The sacred temple of Hindus and Buddhists Muktinath
    • Magnificent view of Mesokanto La.

    Chulu West is a peak of the Manang Himal, a part of larger ranges known as Damodar Himal. The eastern borders of Chulu East extend south from Chako Peak (6687m) in a vertical direction along the Hunlung Khola, Nar Khola, and Phu Khola. To the southern direction, the peak is surrounded by the Marshyangdi Khola and the Mesokanto La. Chulu West Peak Climbing is the highest of the peak climbing, according to the trekking maps, which has been recorded at an altitude of 6400m, appropriately described as Chulu Central. Many climbers have made the mistake of considering this peak as the Chulu East or West. It is generally believed that acquiring permission of the East or West peak, will give you the access to try out for nearby peaks as well.

    In order to reach Chulu West Peak Climbing, one must take a detour from the main trail to the Thorung La pass. After crossing the village of Manang, base camp can be established within the small valley in the north. Following the base camp, the path is encountered with a smaller North-West ridge that will lead to the main peak. Any attempt at climbing the peak from the base camp can be performed in a single day since the terrain is not favorable for any camping as the slope to the peaks is very slanting.

Generally, you walk about 7 hrs every day, but the altitude becomes an obstacle and it is really tough to walk that much. You have to cross the Himalayan passes using basic climbing equipment. Even the trail is steep and may be slippery.
